The Voices of Saudi Arabian Educators as Leaders, Learners and Change Agents
When publishing articles about grants we often share the results of the program evaluation or highlight events. At the Office of Global Engagement, we are taking a different approach to this work. In collaboration with faculty at Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, we engaged in an opportunity for fellows in the Building Leadership for Change through School Immersion project to submit essays about their own experiences as educators both in Saudi Arabia and in the United States and how they have meshed these experiences together to develop as professionals and change agents. Through these articles you will hear the voices of leaders and learners who strive to make a difference in the lives of the children they serve and meet the needs of a country that is moving away from its reliance on petroleum production as the major source of income. Their work is featured in Part II of the special issue in Taboo: The Journal of Culture and Education.
